Seydou knows that his role in Barça will go to less and in June could leave.


Despite not being a permanent fixture in the Barca football or have Xavi or Iniesta, Seydou Keita has a large poster in the football market. The midfielder Mali valued other qualities such as the tactical sense, spirit of sacrifice, his strength, his arrival from second line and header. Since last summer he was tempted by offers from the big European teams. Milan, Juventus, Liverpool or Manchester City knocked on his door, but Keita rejected the option of leaving Barça.

From day Pep Guardiola made ​​you feel part of their project, both with facts and with their statements and Keita is grateful. Moreover, it is very comfortable at Barça and Barcelona, ​​where her daughter was born too small. Up to now, has stated that while Pep do not tell him he has not, will be here.

Still, none of the teams that he wanted to have lost track. On the contrary. Aware that with the arrival of Cesc and the rise of Thiago role to the first team will be shrinking, even though he has sought Pep accommodation in the midfield, big earrings are very Keita.

Keita is not to be a kid, since January 16 will be 32, but considering the average age of the players of Milan still has at least four years to continue playing football.

If it is confirmed that this week published several Italian media, which provided for the arrival of Keita made to Milan next summer, Ibra will result in the decision of Seydou.

A conditional contract

Keita renewed by Barça until 2014 in summer 2010. However, in his contract that is reflected from 2012 will continue the club always linked to the share of games played per season, more than half. In this regard, bearing in mind that your participation in the team is not assured, Keita could consider leaving the end of the season Barca and Milan there would be placed in the pole position.
